Nathan Outteridge and Iain Jensen crowned 49er World champions

Nathan Outteridge and Iain Jensen secured history by winning the 49er World Championship.
Two races were held in the morning for the silver and gold fleets and the bronze fleet results stood on the previous days score. Six to eight knot winds mixed the fleet up a bit as last attempts were made to make the medal race. 

As a tribute, the medal race winners carried a black card in their sails in memory of Frank Bethwaite. 
Young guns Marcus Hansen and Josh Prebski (NZL) sailed a brilliant medal race to move them up in the standings with the medal race held directly in front of the S.C. Uskok to the delight of the crowds that had gathered on the beach and pier to cheer on the sailors.

Second overall was the team of Peter Burling and Blair Tuke (NZL) who had incredible speed and amazing ability to pick the right shifts on the water all week. Danish Olympic team members Allan Norregaard and Peter Lang moved into the bronze medal position by having two great races earlier in the day and finishing 4th in the medal race.

Nath and Gooby have designed the PROtect tapes 49er kit available worldwide. For more info
